The Horsetail plant may be a natural substitute, although I am sure
it has a finer grit than 100. The Wood Horsetail (Equisetum
sylvaticum) is a horsetail (family Equisetaceae) native to the
Northern Hemisphere, occurring in North America, Eurasia, and Asia.
This perennial horsetail has erect, hollow stems that grow from 30
to 60 cm in length and from 1-4 mm thick. All the stems have 10-18
spiny vertical ridges that contain silica spicules.
